  • Celadon

    Celadon (seiji) is a light blue-green pottery, usually porcelain or stoneware, produced by reduction firing a transparent glaze containing iron oxide. By restricting or eliminating the supply of oxygen to the kiln, the reduction firing process causes the iron in the glaze to turn bluish-green.

Celadon and pale-blue celadon porcelain. Charmed by the ancient pottery from the Song dynasty in China, I started to make white porcelain, pale-blue celadon porcelain and celadon porcelain. I am currently making pottery at my kiln which I built in a corner of Japan's oldest road, the "Yamanobe Road".
